Elsewhere, I've seen mentions of certain fictional characters being one's "comfort character" - quite simply, a character you find to be comforting, often to the point of being a coping mechanism. I think the idea's cute, and I figured it'd be a nice idea to start a thread about them since it looks like nobody else has done so yet.

Do you guys have someone you consider a comfort character?

Most Muppets in general, but Kermit singing The Rainbow Connection is something I really like.

Mario and Luigi are two for me, both separate and in combination with each other.

If we put it this way: Mario is comforting to me because I just enjoy hearing the energy in his voice in his games - You can tell that he's having an absolute blast on his adventures, even when the whole world is at stake. And Luigi... My gosh, he's Adorkable incarnate - His mannerisms, facial expressions, body language, he's just a delight to see in action.

But combined... I'm an absolute sucker for family love and wholesome sibling relationships, and seeing these two interact in these games always brings a smile to my face and "Aaaaaw..."-s to my heart. (Which is my Dream Team is my favorite of the M&L games) Mario glomping Luigi after the latter rescues him in Luigi's Mansion 3 had me Squee-ing like there was no tomorrow.

There's no sight in this world that's as calming as a sleeping cat.

Since I haven't mentioned it yet, I think Sig and Amitie might be becoming my comfort characters. They have really goofy but innocent personalities (Amitie is a Dumb Blonde and energetic Nice Girl, while Sig is a calm bug-obsessed geek), and they're ridiculously easy to ship with each other given the in-universe hints. They're so sweet and cuuuuuuute.

Nearly everyone in LittleBigPlanet but especially Sackboy, Newton, N.a.o.m.i, Scarlet and Vex.

I got more if anyone is interested.

This thing might have been an emotional crutch to me for about six years now. For some reason, I just love it more than pretty much anything else in the world.

I doubt this will do much, but I think I'll bump this thread, just for funsies.

Probably my favourite Pokémon, Shuckle. The little guy isn't good in competitive but I love using him, he's so charming and I own a plush of him.

I've... Got quite a few comfort characters. One of them is Rebel Cookie, due to me deciding to roleplay as him in A Game of Mafia 1. He was really fun to RP as, and he just seems pretty chill overall! A shame he's not in Ovenbreak yet.

I usually imagine my own comfort characters, because I can never find a show that quite fits what I want. My most precious are a small soft-spoken boy who is smitten by a scrappy and short-tempered delinquent girl, much to her embarrassment. She tries to humiliate him but only ends up embarrassing herself further. I picture them in a Puni Plush style with soft colours.

Rarity and Applejack, especially non-erotic shipping art of 'em. My anxiety calmed when I found some art, which is really nice.
